First of all, I really liked Desi. I like her for being such a non-conventional girl. Yes, she’s a princess substitute but that doesn’t make her a damsel in distress type of girl. Though I did want to smack from time to time since she has a crush on this guy and I absolutely have no idea what she sees in him at all. Anyway, I think being a princess substitute changed her for the better.
Overall, I enjoyed reading this book though I’d probably recommend this to the younger audience. It was really short though. I think it could’ve been extended or something. The writing style is very simple and very understandable which is good since this makes it easier for the younger audience to understand. It reminded me of Meg Cabot’s The Princess Diaries. I haven’t exactly read any of the novels yet but the movie kinda’ reminded me of this novel. Anyhow, it was lacking in some elements but it is truly enjoyable and I can’t wait to get my hands on the second novel in the series. I’d give this a 4/5 star rating just because of its cuteness factor.
